We recently sent our computer packing. Hubby had hinted that he no longer needed the monster of a PC we had at home and frankly, with a new toy I too didn't need the additional power, so after much discussion, we parted ways with our faithful monster of a computer and sold it at a steal of a deal price to hubby's uncle, the gamer, who cherishes it (much more than either of us ever did).
We've been without a secondary computer for a few weeks in which we've debated between an Apple and something else. We'd started thinking to purchase a Mac but the price made us shy away and so hubby started looking around at other options finally settling on an Acer mini-PC. We played with that a few days and came to the conclusion that it was sluggish (even with only the onboard applications). Hubby returned it yesterday, unsure of what to get but when I walked int he door last night, I saw it. Our new baby and wow, is the darn thing heavy.
After much back and forth, hubby decided to take the plunge and spend the cash on a MacMini, the first computer we'd been looking at when the conversation of an upgrade came up. It's small, sleek and compact and I can't wait to use it.
It was late last night so we didn't set it up before heading to bed but I'm sure it'll be up and running by the time I get home tonight. Can't wait to try it, particularly iMovie and Garage Band!
More adventures in Apple world to come. I'm sure!
